Here is why learning French is so beneficial…
For business – being bilingual isn’t just good for your resumé, it can change your career. As a major language for global commerce, knowing some French can be extremely advantageous for anyone doing business in western Europe or the western half of Africa. Countries in West Africa represent rapidly emerging markets that will be harder to access if you can’t understand French. In Europe, French is essential for many businesses.
Traveling – France is one of the most beautiful countries in Europe to visit – if you can speak French. Seek out the kinds of genuine places that are out of bounds to non-French speakers. If you get away from Paris hotels and Riviera resorts, you’ll discover that most of the country consists of farms, vineyards, and small villages.
French is also spoken in Belgium and Luxembourg, and it’s the second most spoken language in Europe. Furthermore, 20% of Canada speaks French as their first language. and it is the lingua franca of half the African continent: from Morocco to Senegal to Mauritius to Seychelles.
Living abroad – When you speak French well enough to travel without a phrasebook in hand, the idea of staying longer in another country can become tempting. Cities like Paris, Brussels, and Lyon offer opportunities for students looking for a semester abroad; professionals may find the next big thing in growing economies like Algeria, Tunisia, and Côte d’Ivoire; and retirees who appreciate the good things in life continue to be drawn to the south of France.
Brain training – Even if you decide to learn French as a hobby, knowing multiple languages will keep your brain healthy and nimble, even in old age. This is because knowing another language creates another network of connections among your neurons. The higher your neural interconnectivity, the better your memory and problem-solving skills.
French, Belgian and African Cultures, Unfiltered – The French-speaking world is responsible for gorgeous (and delicious) arts and culture. Knowing French will also give you unfiltered access to the films of the French New Wave, the literature of Flaubert, Balzac, and Proust; and the music of Édith Piaf and Serge Gainsbourg.
